Featured Charity Blog: WOMEN’S WAY

The fight for the advancement of women and girls is no easy task and has no simple solution, but this featured charity is leading the way as a powerful voice for women!

WOMEN’S WAY is the leading funding, advocacy and education organization for women in the Greater Philadelphia region, at the forefront of identifying needs, sharing knowledge and building awareness to challenge social inequities and empower women. We serve nearly 200,000 women, girls, and families each year through funding, advocacy, and education programs and events. WOMEN’S WAY envisions an engaged society in which women and girls have achieved economic equity, safety, and reproductive freedom, and have unfettered access to opportunity.

We address critical issues facing women and girls through three key programs. We make strategic grants to women and girls-serving organizations, investing critical dollars and technical support into community-based agencies that sustain families and uplift neighborhoods. We lead proactive advocacy campaigns to influence policy-makers and mobilize support to affect policies that matter to women, girls & families. And finally, we create a broad public dialogue by convening conferences and community forums, hosting issue roundtables and policy briefings, commissioning research reports, producing think tank summits – all with the aim of keeping our finger on the pulse of the community and building broad public awareness.

The empowerment of women is widely recognized as a key indicator in determining the health of our society at-large. By tackling issues uniquely affecting women, WOMEN’S WAY’s initiatives address our communities’ most pressing needs and works towards attaining safety and equality for women, girls, and families in the Greater Philadelphia area.

How can you help?

The fight for the advancement of women and girls is no easy task and has no simple solution. And now, as the political landscape at the state and federal level remains unpredictable, the need for our work becomes that much more urgent. Our voices must be heard – and the women, girls, and families in need deserve our help. We must meet the increased demand for services, as well as the increased need for comprehensive public policy change.  BUT – we cannot do that without your support. Whether donating cash, volunteer time, or simply spreading the word of our mission, you can help WOMEN’S WAY meet its critical goals. With the help of our generous supporters, over $1.1 million has been invested in women and girls worldwide.
